it came on the anniversary of president obama saying that, you know, chemical weapons use is a red line that should not be crossed. that seems to be a direct slap in the face to the president, doesn't it? >> well, my guess is the discussions going on now within the administration are not weather to -- whether to respond but how to respond if chemical weapons are used. our response last time was insufficient. i think that encouraged, made the assad regime think it could get away with using them again. our response this time should be clearer and unmistakable if you use chemical weapons you will suffer pain. therefore, don't use them again. the question is not, whether to use force. it's how much force to use so that the force has the intended effect and not, doesn't create unintended consequences. jon: the foreign minister of turkey is one of those who is saying it's time to get tough. he says, we call on the international community in this situation where the red line was crossed long ago to intervene as soon as possible. but the united states and really a lot of other nations haven't s

at the black liberal establishment, president obama, al sharpton, jesse jackson, leaders of the naacp, their message is about victimization. and this incident as tragic as it is, this incident does not fit into their narrative. so they're going to try to ignore it, pretend it didn't happen. they also tried to ignore the black on black crime that happened, because that highlights the failures of their big government policies in these communiti communities. >> are you saying that unless it's helpful to them politically, sharpton and jack subject and the president it's not helping them politically they're not going to talk about it. >> look at the trayvon martin case, it was made a national news headline on a daily basis. look at the school bus beating in florida. no mention of it except from jesse jackson, he happened to issue a press release just last night. how many phone calls did that take to get that. >> i'm glad you brought that up. we talked about where they were yesterday and jesse jackson put out this tweet that angered a lot of people. praying for the family of chris lane. the
the irs cooperated or not, we don't know because we can't get a true hearing on the issue. obama said that his presidency would be of transparency. so -- americans can know what the government is doing but there is no accountability or transparency. because the people who deal -- are accused of what they are doing, no one has been fired. >> you know the bottom line here, american people just say, you know, what's going on with the irs? there's already a distrust of the irs anyway because of the huge bureaucracy that actually taps into your financial stability or your financial accounts. no one likes to pay taxes. now we are still hearing a distrust among american taxpayers. how do you get beyond this? >> angela and i would agree on this. the way i move it forward is ask -- for every irs tax exempt that has been not allowed an application or anyone that was checked for further information to public. we can all look at the list, we can all see what they allowed and -- to go lou which is public actually because you can look it up, all those -- financial centers. >> now that you said this
